Good Food, Good Location

I will start by saying that this is definitely a place designed for tourists including a photographer that comes around and takes pictures that you can purchase after your meal. That being said. It's still nice. We dined outside which was more like a covered deck with a view but it was perfect. We... read more

Was looking to be blown away but kind of figured it wouldn't happen because it looked to "Hollywood" from the outside. I'll keep this simple. If I'm gonna pay high prices for food.....I expect it to be better than mediocre. I had an appetizer of wings. They were non crispy and unflattering to my tastebuds. I had the rib bucket.... More

Our very first visit here! We loved loved it! We sat outside, fun to realize it was on a pier. Also, loved the bar/entertainment area. We got a strawberry margarita and a beer. Excellent! Service at the bar was very quick! Wonderful fun maragarita glass to take home! Gift shop was huge! So many fun things to look at. Food... More

I love to eat on the beach and at local restaurant any time I get the chance. I had very high hopes for this restaurant but it didn't quite measure up to what I was expecting. The host staff was poor at best but our waitress was great so she by far made up for the poor host. The inside... More

After traveling to the beach for 47 years now, I will say without a doubt that Pineapple Willies is the best. My whole family loved it -- even better the huge, 5-star seafood restaurant with the marina!

We had the alligator bites, seafood sampler, shrimp po boy, and chicken po boy. Our bill was $87 before the tip. The food was good, but I've had better that was less pricey. The real winner here is the view. We sat out on the pier. I recommend requesting to sit there as the view is amazing! Parking was tight... More

Loved the Cuban Sandwich. It had a great smokey flavor. The service was excellent. Definately ask to sit 'outside' which is really on a covered deck.

Located right on the beach, the views were great, however felt a bit like a tourist trap due to large groups and photographer moving from table to table. Food was tasty standard fast food, fries were especially good- Large Po Boys and sandwiches and good outside dining right on the beach.
